Tatsu Do Martial Arts
Soke Cavalier and his Junior Students
TATSU DO KARATE - DAN KATA
TATSU DO KARATE Black Belt (Dan) training includes 10 required kata through 4th Degree. Since Soke Cavalier trained in a number of different martial arts, Tatsu Do Kyu training includes kata from Shotokan, Chito Ryu, Shorei Ryu, Shorin Ryu as well as 3 Soke Cavalier's own Tatsu Do kata. However, in the Black Belt training, there are only 3 kata from Shotokan, while the remaining ones are Soke Cavalier's original forms.

The kata vidoes on this page are intended to illustrate the progression of skill from Shodan through Yodan. They include empty-hand forms as well as traditional Okinawan weapon kata. Tatsu do Black Belts develop proficiency with Bo, Kama, Sai, Tonfa, Nunchoku and other weapons. Black Belt training through Yodan include learning of new kata. For Godan and Rokudan, forms are perfected and tests include going through all kata from white belt through Yodan in succession.

Perfoming the kata in the videos is Hanshi Tomas Roztocil, 8th Dan in Karate, Soke Cavalier's senior student.
